Hi,
Is it now possible to have wire mesh cgo object spheres in pymol?
I found this thread from a while ago (2004) but googleing, I didn't
find anything more recent.


The one sort of work around that I though of was to create pseudo-atoms
and somehow modify their radius and then show them as mesh.
But I would like to use CGO objects if possible.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,
Matt Baumgartner



Sphere transparency example included below...

ALPHA must preceed COLOR to be effective.

PyMOL does not yet do a global sort of tranparent triangles, so there will
be artifacts in OpenGL.  Raytracing should look fine however.

# from within a .py OR .pym file...

from pymol.cgo import *
from pymol import cmd

obj = [

   ALPHA,  1.0,
   COLOR,  1.0, 1.0, 1.0,
   SPHERE, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.5, 

   ALPHA,  0.66,
   COLOR,  1.0, 0.0, 0.0,
   SPHERE, 1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.5, 

   ALPHA,  0.33,
   COLOR,  0.0, 1.0, 0.0,
   SPHERE, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0, 0.5, 

   ALPHA,  0.11,
   COLOR,  0.0, 0.0, 1.0,
   SPHERE, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.5, 
]

cmd.load_cgo(obj,'cgo01')
